In 2015, Dr. Gaber received a federal SSHRC grant that allowed her to embark on a 53-city expedition over the course of 2.5 years, investigating the design and architectural history of more than 90 mosques. During her visit to each mosque, Dr. Gaber photographed the exterior and interior, documented the interiors so that measured architectural floor plans could be drawn, and interviewed members of governance, users and architects to better understand the intricacies of each sacred site.

In her talk at the Museum, Dr. Gaber will highlight some of the most interesting mosques she encountered along the way — from the extreme north towns of Inuvik and Iqaluit, to a community-based hub in the Maritimes, as well as exploring how these spaces are used, why they are so important, and the people who shaped them along the way. Following her talk, Dr. Gaber will be signing copies of her book, Beyond the Divide: A Century of Canadian Mosque Design which will be available for purchase.
